Before I go ahead and set up our TFTP server - does anyone have any recommendations for server software? I'm after something that will run as a service under windows 2k3 server, and will be reliable.

Cheers!

I use tftpd32, It's been reliable for me. I use it with a linux bootloader to load network drive mapping DOS images.

Thanks.. looks like I'll be giving TFTD32 a try - I see its recommended by Cisco (according to Wikipedia anyway)

I found that tftp32 stopped working after a while for no apparant reason.

Windows Server 2003 comes with a TFTP service as part of its RIS/WDS component
You don't need to install either though to gain access to it as Morgan Simonsen has kindly provided a vbs script that will install it for you at http://www.simonsen.bz/Download/Forms/AllItems.aspx.
Give it a directory and away you go

It doesn't however provide a log though (that I know of) so what I do is use tftpd32 to get things up and running and for diagnosis and then flick back to the Windows service when things are going okay again.
